TRADING MANNY: HOW A FATHER & SON LEARNED TO LOVE BASEBALL AGAIN (Da Capo Press; 2012)
My memoir about teaching baseball to my son Joe in the thick of the steroids scandal, and answering his childlike questions about why ballplayers took drugs, and why we shouldn't.
"I salute you for giving your son a love of baseball. There is no nobler thing a dad can do." -- Bill Bryson, best-selling author of At Home and A Walk in the Woods
FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH, a novel (Yam Hill Publishing; 2010)
"The words that jump to mind to describe this book - clever, witty, imaginative, poignant - are all so clichéd that they end up feeling
misleading to use relative to The Fountain of Youth. This is one audacious, unusual book." -- Janet Noble Iversen, author and psychologist
TRY THIS FOR BETTER SEX (Yam Hill Publishing, 2012)
TRY THIS FOR BETTER SEX...AND OTHER STORIES FROM THE HOW-TO GURU is a collection of some of my favorite writings, the pseudo reviews that I wrote for Premiere Magazine in the late-'80s and early-'90s.
These are short, goofy and (I think) very funny stories about the likes of Fabio work-out videos, Morgan Fairchild giving advice, and wildly esoteric things like videos on how to dance at your wedding or buy yellow pages ads.
All of them made ripe, juicy targets for satiric reviews. And thanks to the miracle of eBooks and Amazon, I can compile them here and offer them for a paltry $2.99. Happy reading!
